The series Xperia continues to grow and a few days ago two new smartphones to its ranks were added: the Sony Xperia Z2 and M2 Sony Xperia . The Japanese company elected under the fair Mobile World Congress to expand its portfolio with these two models, which cover two different ranges. On one side is the Sony Xperia M2 a midrange with very interesting features like 4.8 inch screen or quad core processor. On the other hand we have the Sony Xperia Z2, the new top model of the brand that focuses on the most advanced systems of the time. We see all the differences of these two models in a comparative .
Display and Design
Large displays are fully consolidated in the mobile segment, and here we see how even the mid-range offering big screens. The Sony Xperia M2 has a panel of 4.8 inches in diagonal and its resolution is qHD, or what is the same, 960 x 540 pixels. This is a large panel, but within the limits of the functionality and density intermediate (229 ppi) . Meanwhile, the Sony Xperia Z2 highest bet with a panel of 5.2 inchesand resolution FullHD , so its density is no less than 423 ppi. But not only that, the flagship of the Japanese also features improvements such as engine X Reality and technology Triluminos , getting improve the image by increasing the contrast and richer colors.
Sony remains faithful to the design have been showing for some time. The two devices are the same outside line, which is characterized by its rectangular shape and the use of glass to cover both sides, even onsale in the same colors (white, black and purple). The most obvious difference is the size where the Sony Xperia Z2 is coming forward with a larger screen. However, despite being bigger, his profile isthinner. The other difference is the protection of the chassis, which in the case of top model is water resistant and dust ingress, while the Sony Xperia M2 does not support dives .
The Sony Xperia Z2 has one of the most advanced cameras of all the mobile landscape. This is a sensor of 20.7 megapixels type Exmor RS , prepared to get good results in low light conditions, making videos and photos on HDR and also has a very quick response. We are attached to a G lens and a processorBIONZ , plus a variety of special features like Superior Auto mode, stabilizer , option Clear Zoom,creative filters, Camera and AR Social Effects. One of its main strengths is recording of videos , which can reach 4K resolution at a frequency of 30 frames per second. Yet if we lower the quality FullHD orHD720p , the frequency increases to 60 and 120 frames per second, so you can create effects slow motion very interesting. Finally has a 2.2 megapixel front sensor also allows you to record in full HD quality.
In the case of Sony Xperia M2 we find a much simpler camera but complete for a mid-range terminal. The sensor is also an RS Exmor, so there will be good results in low light, but its resolution is left in 8 megapixels. has autofocus, LED flash, face detector, HDR for pictures and also record video in full HD , but only at 30 frames per second frequency.
Power, memory and operating system
Both models feature a quad-core chip firm Qualcomm , but there is a clear difference in potency. The chipSony Xperia Z2 is a Snapdragon 801, the most advanced model of the brand with architecture Krait 400and runs at 2.3 GHz, which is well supported by 3Gb memory RAM. The Sony Xperia M2, in hand, has aSnapdragon 400 Cortex A7 working to 1.5 Ghz and has only 1 GB of RAM , which is not bad for a mid-range.
The most advanced model also outperforms it in internal memory, with a background of 16 Gb and option to extend to 64 GB additional cards MicroSD . The Sony Xperia M2 has a background of 8 GB and also accepts, but 32 GB maximum.
Again, the Sony Xperia Z2 is positioned one notch above by having Android 4.4 KitKat series, while theXperia M2 will come with Android 4.3 Jelly Bean despite being perfectly capable of running the new version. Presumably that Sony will update later, but already disadvantaged party.
Connectivity and autonomy
The Sony Xperia Z2 also makes both connections, as it has a chip L TE that lets you connect to mobile networks 4G , but otherwise are tied. Both can connect to the Internet via WiFi or 3G, have DLNA , chipNFC, Bluetooth 4.0 , Antenna GPS , WiFi Hotspot, minijack headphone and MicroUSB (only in the case of Sony Xperia Z2 system supports MHL ).
Data on autonomy also give advantage to the most advanced model, with its battery of 3,000 milliampsachieved lasting 19 hours in use and up to 740 hours on standby. Meanwhile the Sony Xperia M2 has a stack of 2,300 milliamps and can be on 14 hours in use and up to 693 hours on standby.
